Description

A great run through the upper section of Red Rocks. The trail is mainly dirt with a few slick rock sections. Keep an eye out for mountain bikers it can be hard to see around corners.

Along this trail, you'll enjoy beautiful views of Red Rocks that you don't normally get to see on the main trails. It is very Zion National Park-looking.
